We interrupt this blog for an important Muggle message...

I owe this blog many many posts on the various short stories I read over vacay, but I just haven't gotten around to it. It's been crazy catching up at work, and with my family around these weeks, very little time to myself. What time I do get to myself, I'm turning my brain off. Yes, you heard me, I've been bad, I haven't even written. But my next term of writing class starts next week, so I'll be back on the back of that horse soon enough.

In the meanwhile, I wanted to bring up something Moonrat mentioned - Harry Potter! [Excuse me while I put on my, um, Harry Potter Gryffindor costume in preparation to stand on line for the Wizarding Convention Party, madly waving a copy of my own version of Harry Potter slasher fic.]

[Okay, no, I'm not that far gone yet. And I don't read OR write Harry Potter fanfic! I'm a purist!]

Harry Potter, movie 5 comes out next week. And then the FINAL Harry Potter book comes out the weekend after (of course I've had mine preordered for months and months!).

So I am here, to tell you, faithful readers, that I may be taking a break from all of my high-brow literary pursuits (*cough*) to re-read Harry Potter 5 and 6 as a refresher, to be followed by Harry Potter 7 when it arrives in my mailbox! Because, quite honestly, everyday NYMag's Vulture posits a new theory, and I have no idea what they're talking about because I've already completely forgotten.

How about it, Moonratty? Want to delve into a re-read with me?

YES! You're on. I think 5 and 6 is reasonable (I was thinking about trying to start at 4, but I'm afraid I might have run out of time).
